Writing Wednesday: Writing Prompt No. 16 Beliefs


Here’s a a little something to help you delve into what makes your character tick:

One of the most personal things to a person is what they believe in. Whether current or from childhood, our belief systems help shape our morals, world views, and relationships. They can be sources of comfort, strength, guilt, or conflict. What does your character believe (or not believe) in? What system were they raised with? Do they still ascribe to that system or have they rejected it? Are they religious? Do they question? How does their belief system impact their day-to-day life, if at all? What is their reaction to belief systems of others?  Really dig deep. The things you discover can reveal some pretty powerful things about your character.

Happy writing!
